IBM Launches New Workstations
- By Scott Bekker
IBM announced a new rackmounted workstation and flat-panel
monitor that help free up space and reduce energy and maintenance costs in the
working environment of financial trading floors. The new solution moves
workstations from traders’ desks to a back room where up to 42 pizza-box-shaped
systems can be stacked in a six foot (42U) rack.
The solution includes the new IntelliStation R Pro remote
trader workstation,a 1U rackmounted computer targeted at financial institutions.
The machines are run on one or two Pentium III processors and feature up to 4
GB of SDRAM. The system can also run industry-standard financial trading room
applications. The workstations are stacked vertically in a central computer
room, eliminating the tangle of cables in the workspace.
